Look at the notes you made yesterday about how the crew felt. They have been trapped in the drifting ice for five months! It was incredibly important for Shackleton to keep his crew’s morale high.

Think carefully about what makes these speeches motivational. Write down any sentence starters or endings that you think could go into Shackleton’s speech.
How do these speakers get their message across?
